Building an ipk file using control file

Hello opkg developers !
I was able to create an ipk file for project osip.
But it seems that the control file is not taken into account: once installed
on FreeRunner, here is output of "opkg list_installed osip" and "okpg info
osip" commands :
root at om-gta02:~# opkg list_installed osip
osip - 0.1b -
root at om-gta02:~# opkg info osip
Status: install user installed
And here is my control file:
Maintainer: Fernando <fernando at no-log.org>
Description: Osip is a SIP client to place phone calls on SIP networks.
It needs an internet connection.
I tried building package using om-make-ipkg and ipkg-build , but both
methods give the same result: control file does not seems to be used...
Is this a known bug ? Do you have any idea on how to build better ipk files ?
 complete directory used with ipkg-build command can be found here:
